Luckless Seven is the story of Mark Vesco’s coming of age. Once an inspired youngster, Mark finds himself living a listless, dutiful existence just two years out of high school. When a group of old friends contacts Mark about reuniting with them, the stars align to allow him to join his old friends in a nationwide competitive tournament.

Take control of Mark as he and six friends set out to compete in Arithia’s most popular game, Ekosi. This fast and fun card game is inspired by KOTOR’s Pazaak, and the stakes couldn’t be higher. With a little experience, money, and luck, take Mark from a modest amateur to an Ekosi champion!

Which card to play won’t be the only difficult choice for Mark, though. Along his journey, Mark will have to make several decisions that will challenge him morally, ethically, and socially. More than just a card game, Luckless Seven invites you to take control of the whole person. Who will Mark be on his quest for glory?

Hello super friends,

We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy out there. We here at Deckpoint are currently in the midst of a statewide lockdown and are pretty much confined to our comfy (mostly) quarters.

Trying to make the best of a global pandemic, these last couple weeks gave us some time to reflect on our workflow and the road ahead. We are quite a ways from the initial target date we set for Luckless Seven, but we are still absolutely committed to seeing this through.

New Mark Portraits in development!


Old portraits for Mark that will be phased out in time.


One drawback to the long development is that earlier parts of the game tend to not reflect the level of quality of the parts we work on today. During playtesting feedback, this gets pointed out. Oftentimes, we end up going back to those sections and bring them up to snuff.

Help people find their path.


Today I wanted to take a quick dive into the inner workings of Deckpoint Studio. Specifically, I wanted to talk about the main person handling the ropes. That person is the developer and lead of Luckless Seven, Jesse Kooner. Given the very long span of Luckless Seven’s development, Jesse has been the only person who has continued to work on the game full time since its inception. We’ve gotten some questions from people over the years on how we’ve managed to keep up game development for so long. The answer is that most of us on the teamwork other jobs that help keep us alive.

Emerald Casino is the next stage of the card-game Ekosi tournament! Containing over 50 NPCs and every inch is full of detail!


This means, of course, that Luckless Seven has experienced all the great positives and stifling negatives of a project with one sole coder. Jesse being the only programmer means that there is always cohesiveness with all the technical aspects of the game. However, this also means that when he gets extremely sick (please stay away coronavirus), it almost always means the personal deadlines we had for that time period have to be moved back. While we can continue to produce music, art, or story, those are frequently not the bottleneck for releasing a new major game build.


Jesse Kooner, Lead Developer on Luckless Seven. Programmer, Environmental Artist, and Implementer of everything in the game engine.

The ultimate result of this is that Jesse has had a hand in every aspect of Luckless Seven, from marketing, website design, game development, and business management. Fortunately for the rest of us, Jesse had developed many of those skills already from previous work experience. Jesse’s time studying business for his MBA program also helped with managing the finances and tax work for the studio.

Your "friends" just got even more interesting.


This wide range of experience has helped him manage the work done by the rest of the team and bring everything together in Unity3D. With him being the only one working in the engine, he’s managed to rack up some impressive stats: he’s written almost 100,000 lines of code, built dozens of unique environments, and created the models for hundreds of characters. But wait, that’s not all! Every piece of art, music, or dialogue from each member of the team has to be worked into the game by him as well. Given how large the project has become, it’s been very handy to have someone who has physically put each asset into the game.

Notice that this is line 2600 and where the slider bar is on the right (20% down). Jesse has written nearly 100,000 lines of code for Luckless Seven in Javascript/ Unityscript and C#.


Talk with your party members and learn more about them!


Although the road has been long, Deckpoint continues to receive support from Tyler, Emma, Brandon, Jonathan, and Jesse. Together, we Captain Planet our way through the project and help keep each other sane. This year will be big for Luckless Seven, and we hope you will continue to stay tuned to the final leg of this long journey.

Thank you for playing! We'll definitely be adding a lot of new features to the game over the next couple months. We've been working hard on the overworld and dialogue system, and we should have them implemented into the demo within the next couple months. We hope you'll take another look at the game when those changes are up!
